Rift Goes Free-to-Play With Rift Lite

Posted by on February 6, 2012 - 1 Comment »

Been holding out on giving Rift a try in the hopes it’ll go free to play? Now’s the time! TrionWorlds  has finally taken a first step toward the free-to-play dream – now you can play the first 20 levels for free! There’s no time limit, and no credit card required, all you need is the download and a Trion account. Rift Lite is available for anyone, whether you’ve previously played the game or not.

I’ve never been a fan of the timed game trials and demos, so I’m glad to see more trials that are limited by level rather than time.  It’s a better deal than a 3 day trial, that’s for sure. I may even give it a try, to see how the game has changed since closed beta. I wonder if this means we’ll eventually see a full free-to-play Rift?

What do you think is Rift‘s future?
